About

Welcome to The Queens Dowry, where found treasures have been fashioned into amusing adornments to wear!

Growing up, I watched with fascination of my families artistic sides, someone was always creating; sewn dolls in buttoned down dresses, crocheted blankets, quilts, Halloween costumes, and even a skating rink for us kids just for the fun of it. In the summer the yard boasted a beautiful well tended to garden, which in turn produced abundant blooms for me to delight the teachers with. There was a patio constructed of individually crafted colored cement blocks, refinished furniture, and a decorative metal stand for the fish tank…for if it could be made plans were in the midst!

And so, I made things, lots of them. Now, everything in those early years did not go exactly to plan and I can remember often falling on my expertise…

Welcome to The Queens Dowry, where found treasures have been fashioned into amusing adornments to wear!

Growing up, I watched with fascination of my families artistic sides, someone was always creating; sewn dolls in buttoned down dresses, crocheted blankets, quilts, Halloween costumes, and even a skating rink for us kids just for the fun of it. In the summer the yard boasted a beautiful well tended to garden, which in turn produced abundant blooms for me to delight the teachers with. There was a patio constructed of individually crafted colored cement blocks, refinished furniture, and a decorative metal stand for the fish tank…for if it could be made plans were in the midst!

And so, I made things, lots of them. Now, everything in those early years did not go exactly to plan and I can remember often falling on my expertise of Kleenex Ghosts when another project just wasn't working out! By the age of 12, I was making trendy jewelry, and my father took an interest. He helped me with various tools to use, how to enhance the original designs, and even designated a corner of his desk for a mini storefront for my creations. So began my first little business adventure.

Many years later I was in search for a specific sun piece of jewelry to give as a gift, and when I couldn't find it made, I went on a supply hunt instead, found Etsy and have never left!

I've always enjoyed treasure hunting and the discovery of the truly unique. My goal is to unearth the most unusual of adornments and transform them into wearable art that hold much symbolism and heartfelt regard for those things one might treasure in life.

I appreciate your stopping by to take a look through some of the treasures I've found!
